Hardanger, Romanian point lace and blackwork are unusual names for beautiful needlework. These and other types of embroidery stitched by members of Pajarito Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) will be displayed Sept. 15-28 in a case in the lobby of Mesa Public Library.
The EGA is a national educational organization dedicated to promoting and preserving needle arts.
The local chapter meets at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of the month in Gibson Fellowship Hall of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Los Alamos. Each meeting features a program about a stitching technique or project. During the past year, the group has explored needle felting, blackwork, drawn thread, curved stitchery and Romanian point lace, as well as various elements of design and color.
From 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 21 members of Pajarito Chapter will be in the lobby of Mesa Public Library to demonstrate various embroidery techniques. The public is invited to watch the stitchers at work. They’ll explain the various techniques and answer questions.
